The Goddard School in Eldridge/ West Oaks, Houston
Please do not send your child to Goddard West Houston, TX. In the very short time my child was in their care the following happened:
-Front desk left unmanned on 3 separate occassions (despite being told that never happens, would never happen again, should never happen and finally, that they try not to leave the desk unattended with the window wide open.
-When I voiced my concern about the lack of staff presence at the front desk the owner told me if someone wants to come in here and shoot everyone they will, there is nothing we can do to stop them.
-My child was not fed an afternoon snack because I failed to fill out a part of a form (I wasn't informed of the policy). They never called me to ask about it, they simply skipped a meal for my infant.
-Waited for over 30 minutes while they tried to find a teacher to come to the class in the morning which resulted in me being late to work.
-Had to wait on several occasions for owner/director/teachers to find and copy daily forms. This resulted in me being late to work TWICE in my one week there.
-Plastic glove left on low table in childrens reach after arts and crafts time (as reported by my mother who was in the room to ease my child's transition.
--Sensory Box left on the floor in the room contained small snowlake decorations which were labled THIS IS NOT A TOY and were small enough to be a choking hazard. The owners son (an infant student in the class) was playing with it, I saw and asked the teacher who said oh, that usually isnt on the floor and was not overly concerned. Hazard NOT removed by teacher. I ended up removing it myself before I left with my child.
-My child managed to get a PAINFUL red diaper rash in her one week there.
I have removed my child from this facility. There is a reason they are not at full capacity. I urge you to fully investigate any center you choose and don't be afraid to randomly drop in. You will be suprised at what you might find.
